Cookies Policy

Cookies are pieces of data that are often created when you visit a website, and which are stored in the cookie directory of your computer.

Many websites use cookies to "remember" information about you. A cookie is simply a programme sent by the server to your computer. It makes it more convenient for you by allowing you to visit pages within a site without having to reintroduce yourself with each mouse click. If you are concerned about your privacy while visiting this site, please read our privacy notice.

Our website uses the following cookies:

  • Introductory Message Cookie
    This tells us if you have already seen our message about using cookies and stops it displaying if you have.
  • Customise Cookie
    This allows you to set which sections appear on the homepage, and does not store any personal information about you, only retaining your settings.
  • Survey Cookie
    To help try and improve our user experience we have a survey provided by a third party company (SOCITM). Every year, visitors to our website will be offered the chance to talk to us about our website, something which a visitor can accept or decline. To stop visitors being asked every time they come to the website a cookie is written telling us not to ask you (or that computer) again for a year. No personal information about you is retained, as the cookie remembers that the computer has been asked about the survey, not the individual.
  • Analytics Cookie
    Again to help try and improve the website we keep track of visitors to the website and what they do when they come to us. This information is collected by a third party company (Google). There is no personal information collected and retained by this cookie, merely that someone has visited the website and that they looked at certain pages during that visit. This information is anonymous but is incredibly useful to us when we try to improve the website.

To recap, none of our cookies contain any personal information about you and cannot be used to identify you.

You can set your browser not to accept cookies, and it will not dramatically alter the usefulness of our website.
